We don’t educate, we wire brains to accept authority unthinkingly.That is indoctrination where power comes from the top down. In Integral Education (IE) students, teachers, parents, administrators share power. They all are learning how to use the powers they need to do their tasks and jobs to the best of their abilities.In our traditional education structure we tend to ignore great ideas, especially those that encourage the kind of deep thinking that IE encourages. Thinking beings ask questions and the result is excitement, spontaneity, and the unknown.IE offers teachers the responsibility and personal imperative to create 21st century learning opportunities for her students. IE is an ethical classroom. The teacher models and utilizes classroom situations to teach compassion, caring, respect, empathy, and quality trusting relationships and communities in the classroom.Each student develops all his interests and his talents without neglecting a basic education. Creativity, like thinking, is talked about in teaching, but the closed structure of schools, the need to be in control, militates against creativity. IE students learn about cooperation (emotional intelligence),  healthy socialization (character development), and improvement of thinking and creativity.Many other factors separate IE from normal teaching written by teachers and professors who explain the whys and the hows of IE.
